DETROIT — A Detroit-area hospital network has less than 100 COVID-19 patients for the first time in more than two months.
Henry Ford Health System, which has five acute-care hospitals, said it had 96 patients Tuesday morning. The peak was 752 COVID-19 patients on April 7.
Beaumont Health has been under 300 patients since May 20.
Meanwhile, retail shops around Michigan reopened with restrictions on the number of people who can be inside. People also can make an appointment to visit auto dealers.
The Michigan Retailers Association created signs that businesses can print and display. They highlight the importance of masks, hand sanitizer and customers limiting their touching to what they might buy.
Restaurants and bars remain closed to dine-in customers, except in northern Michigan. Casinos, gyms, barber shops and hair salons also are closed.
“We look forward to working with the governor to accelerate the opening process. Every day retailers are closed is another day we’ll lose more stores,” said Bill Hallan, president of the Michigan Retailers Association.
